fitsity still. there's no legislative language. it looks like what could be a pretty big tax increase. the spending cuts i think are highly uncertain. it instructs the various committees of the senate and the house to come up with these spending cuts. we have no assurance that they will do that. we have no idea how they'll do that. then we asked the senate to vote on that. all of which suggests to me there are a number of ways in which this could fall apart. i give these guys all the credit in the world for really struggling and trying to make some progress on a tough issue. there's no assurance that it results in an outcome. if we can't agree on spending cuts now, why should we suppose at the end of this process which after all has been available to us for two years the senate won't even pass a budget, why we think that this will result in real spending cuts is not clear to me. >> the other dynamic here is the mcconnell-reid proposal. that is going to get to the floor at some point. now the idea of being that the gang of six proposal is too late to be scored by cbo to really be put i

if some big player decides to sell off. >> obviously i'm not qualified to speak on behalf of the markets and what they will or will not do, but just my own judgment based upon all the various kinds of conversations that are occurring, are that we will find a way to deal with this issue. we do know that the root cause of our debt and deficit problem is spending is just too high. we also want economic growth. we don't want to embrace policies that we sincerely believe will damage the economy and hurt job creation. if you do that, then you lose even more revenues. so what we want to do is get a downpayment on our deficit and debt by getting spending cuts. i think that there are constructive conversations that are occurring both sides of the rotund rotunda, both sides of pennsylvania avenue. i do believe cooler heads will prevail. >>> what are the constructive convsations? for instance, are some elements of the gang of six proposal, i know you said it's not specific enough, it doesn't go adequately to slowing the growth of health spending, but are there constructive cuts proposed so far that

." big developments expected on the debt ceiling debate. john boehner hopes to unveil a new deal by 4:00 p.m. this afternoon. mike viqueira has more. good sunday morning, mike. >> reporter: well, good morning to you. crunch time in washington after talks in the white house blew up between republicans and president friday night. congressional leaders and staff have been scrambling to find a way out of the mounting crisis and of course, there are nine days to go before the first possible default in u.s. financial history and government history. leaders hope to announce at least later today the framework for an agreement. and they're doing that in part to soothe worldwide market jitters that many of the markets open late today eastern time around the world for monday openings and there's a great deal of concern an adverse effect. john boehner has a proposal on the table. leaders huddled last night to look at it. call for $1 trillion in cuts but dealing with major questions, the most volatile questions that we've seen, including cuts and changes to social security and medicare, and what t
's go now to washington. it's big news inside the beltway today. the latest debt deal broke down last night, but in just less than two hours now, lawmakers are iffing to be back at the white house to restart negotiations. the talks fell apart last night when john boehner walked away from the table blaming the white house for the failure. well, the president pointeded a finger at the gop. the two appeared at back to back news conferences. >> it is hard to understand why speaker boehner would walk away from this kind of deal if it was unbalanced, it was unbalanced in the direction of not enough revenue. the sdmroo the white house moved the goal post. there was an agreement with the white house and $800 billion in re new. it's the president who walked away from his agreement and demanded more money at the last minute. >> well, joining me now nbc white house correspondent mike vicara. good morning to you, mike. what is the big sticking point here? how did things go wrong so fast, or is that only our perception of it? >> yeah, you know, you are absolutely right. it just collapsed. these te
. >>> the big business of gay marriage. one day before same sex couples tie the knot in new york, how some companies are planning to cash in. >>> good morning, everyone. i'm alex witt. welcome to msnbc saturday. we have two developments in two deadly attacks carried out in norway that left 91 people dead. police have one man in custody suspected in both attacks. one was a bomb set off in downtown oslo, and the other happened not long after when a gunman went on a shooting spree at a teen summer camp at an island outside of oslo. martin fletcher joins me on the phone from oslo. martin, let's talk about what police are revealing about the suspect. what do they know? >> reporter: well, alex, he's 32 years old, and he's a norwegian. interestingly on his facebook page he updated his facebook page just a week ago, and on that he called himself a conservative and he called himself a christian and he said his favorite hobby was hunting. so this paints a picture of a man who seems to be -- well, how can you describe such a person? radical of some kind. the police are saying it looks like it was the
to agree on something balanced as long as it's big. in the house r there are republicans ideologically opposed to anything that increases revenue. now all the government deficit projections are based on the idea bush tax cuts expire for everyone, according to current statute, the end of next year. if you regard not only any change in the law that reduces the deficit as unacceptable but any failure to change the law is also unacceptable, then it's going to be very hard to pass anything through the house other than perhaps the mcconnell plan, without the savings in it. >> we're hearing from harry reid using the phrase, "time is of the essence," hearing that over and over again and taking us to the brink. do you get the feeling we are actually inching any closer to clenching a deal? >> i think the mcconnell proposal, with some savings we can all agree to, may very well end up being the package. it's very important to the president we have a 3.5, 4$4.5 trillion package. woe may not in this short time agree to more than a $5 million down payment and vague creation of commission goals, state
to other states and has been trying in a very big way of spreading the gospel of making it harder to vote all across the country. not just in kansas, but everywhere. earlier this week chris coback wrote urging politicians in other states to do what he and sam brownback have done in kansas, the case republicans broadly make for the urgent need for these new make it harder to vote laws is that voter fraud is wide spread across the country and a real threat. as evidence, there were 221 incidents of voter fraud reported in kansas between 1997 and 2010. seven of which yielded convictions. that's the evidence. 13 years, 7 convictions. convictions? detailed in a report from mr. coback's office in kansas. they consist of the following. one instance of electioneering, so campaigning too close to a polling place and six incidents of double voting, people voting in kansas or another state or two different counties in kansas. again, the seven convictions that are evidence to make voting harder is one case of electioneering and six cases of double voting. here's the thing, whether or not those seven c
to happen here with rupert murdoch and his son james tomorrow? >> well, that is certainly, that is the big question. and rupert murdoch and his son james, and rebekah brooks, who are appearing before the select committee have to be so careful, and so careful in fact, that rupert murdoch's biographers saying he is in rehearsals and being coached by aides and he is walking a fine line, because on one hand, he is under oath, and so like he and his son and rebekah brooks, they can't lie. if they do lie, it is a crime. so they have to be careful what they say. they can't mislead this group, but at the same time, they don't want to give too much away either, because this is such a reprehensible difficult and negative story that any facts on how to what extent the criminality of how far it went up the ladder at any of the companies as the facts come out, it could well, we could well see a drop from the bottom just out of news corporation. today, already, tamron, we saw a 5% jump in news corp stock in australia. so that the wheels of this amazing story just keep rolling along, and you mentioned in
a stumbling block along the way to a potential big agreement. they've been negotiating all along behind closed doors. alex wrshs. >> okay. thank you very much, mike. see you next hour. >>> well, this week's nbc news-wall street journal poll found a majority of americans are worried about the effects of not striking a deal soon. 55% of voters say it is a real and serious problem if they fail to raise the debt limit. 18% say it would not be a problem. i'm joined now about nbc's deputy political director mark murray. good morning to you, mark. >> good morning, alex. >> as we look at that poll, most americans want to see something get done. why can't washington make this happen? >> well, according to our poll, alex, almost all americans want some type of compromise, but not everyone does. overwhelming majorities of democrats and independents say they want democratic leaders to compromise. also, an overwhelming majority of political independents want republican leaders to comp midz. the exception? a majority of republican respondents want their republican leaders to hold their ground and stick thei
in the senate, even as house republicans double down on symbolic spending cuts. the big breakthrough coming from the newly resurrected gang of six, a plan to reduce deficits by nearly $4 trillion in the coming decade. president obama championed the plan tuesday, and it emerged with the support of 49 senators on both sides of the aisle. house republicans, on the other hand, spent all day tuesday debating, and last night passing a cut, cap and balance, ccb proposal, that has little or no chance of surviving in the senate. senator chuck schumer described it today as dead on arrival and faces the promise of a veto if it were to reach the president, and despite digging in their heels against new ref gnaw and in favor of more spending cuts tea party walsh had a hard time explaining what cuts were in the house bill. >> why doesn't it name the cuts? >> it calls for $111 billion in cuts, chris. >> where? >> in the bill. >> you've criticized the president for not having a plan and you don't have one. >> all right. we're joined now by nbc's luke russert who covers capitol hill and nbc's mick viqueira at th
the possibility of doing something bigger. >> look, here's where things stand. there are three different big deals out there. number one is what the president and speaker boehner and eric cantor are negotiating, which is, yes, a big deal that is separate from anything the gang of six in the senate is working on. and then of course there's mcconnell-reid. one thing that's going on in the last 24 to 48 hours, is any deal that's mcconnell-reid that includes this idea of sort of the disapproval vote, giving the president more power to raise the debt ceiling, that thing has grown to the point of almost being toxic with some house republicans. in fact, they hate it so much, they may prefer to negotiate with the president directly. but for the white house, getting the 217 means making a deal acceptable to at least some of those houses with 87 new members. the man who's made himself their standard bearer, majority leader eric cantor put it this way. >> one-third of the republican conference and one-quarter of the entire house of representatives are freshmen, they're new. many of them have never served in
pulls the media's strings to avoid the government being called to task for what it's doing? >>> big news today. martin bashir, the mega panel here in new york, msnbc political analyst karen finney, republican strategist susan del percio and martin. doing a tremendous job in articulating the media, specifically news corp. and power in great britain. is a corrupt government by definition something that can only get worse in the face of a corrupt media and are we now seeing that be revealed? >> interesting to hear rupert murdoch to describe him visy itting downing street the back door both with the previous prime minister gordon brown, the one prior to him, tony blair and the current prime minister david cameron. and on each occasion the members of parliament said, why didn't you come through the front door? and he said, because this is what the inhabitant of number 10 asked me to do. so there was clearly a very close relationship between him and each prime minister. you have to remember that this man's newspapers claimed to be able to swing elections. in 1987 after the general election, th
backed bill included big spending cuts, a cap on spending and a constitutional amendment. >> it's a correct approach. this is fundamentally a spending problem. >> it passed in the house earlier this house. >> this vote the yeas are the 34. >> today majority leader harry reid grudgingly scheduled a senate vote. it failed just as he predicted. >> this is a very, very bad piece of legislation. >> today's vote could clear the way for one of several compromise deals. >> we all know mr. president there are talks going on between president obama and speaker boehner. >> this was a bit of hope yesterday when "the new york times" reported a possible deal between president obama and house speaker boehner. both sides quickly denied it. >> there is no deal. we are not close to a deal. >> there is no deal. no deal publicly, no deal privately. there is absolutely no deal. >> but he didn't say they're not talking about it. >> we've got to keep the lines of communication open. we talked about fall back options if in fact cut, cap and balance does go down. i do think that it's our obligation to h
. some good news for some. we're lessening the heat, pushing it further south with this big ridge now going to park itself over at least the central part of the u.s., where the heat and drought will continue. right over the state of texas even through wednesday, you can see this little dip in the jet stream. that brings some slightly cooler air, not as hot air into parts of the east here, but right by friday the ridge is going to build back in and we could see temperatures in the low to mid 90s. i certainly don't think any more 90 degree or 100-degree heat, excuse me, but we're still going to see hot stuff. the heat advisories, watches and warnings in effect basically from philly south along the coast and into the nation's midsection where this heat wave has taken the toll. right around two dozen fatalities, unfortunately, from this big heat wave. so it is a big story. and the other big story has been the rainfall here in and around places like chicago where we've had heavy rain, record rainfall yesterday. more problems. and the drought continues across the south, alex, where we wish
as she stepped into the night and into a waiting suv. big smile on her face there. that suv drove away that's the last the public saw of casey. according to attorney chany mason that's some of the last we'll see of her for some time. >> i think if you're waiting to see her in court again, you'd better get a rocking chair. as far as all the rumors about paid interviews and books and movies there's been no truth to any of that. nothing has been agreed to in any capacity whatsoever. >> we're live in orlando, are you getting any clues about her whereabouts? >> reporter: not really. she really did vanish. her team here, her legal team effectively did what they wanted to pull off. she left the jail here, got into that suv, drove down the road right here which was closed off. there was nom news helicopters that chased. but there were a variety of s.u.v.'s out there. when they got into downtown it was sort of hard to keep track of which was which behind the buildings. next thing you know the news choppers lost her in the darkness downtown. then there was at an airport one of the s.u.v.'s had g
administration, and so in terms of the general framework, everyone is on board, and the big obstacle has been that while we are willing to give the president a little running room to discuss that framework, the republicans have said no to even talking about the revenue piece. >> and yet there is some anger, isn't there, from democrats about the extent to which the president is prepared to compromi compromise, but isn't he right the do so given the perilous state of the debt ceiling discussions and the impending deadline? >> well, first of all, there is no agreement. there are a lot of rumors flying around about what may or may not be in an agreement. for example yesterday there was a story that the white house agreed to $3 trillion in cuts and no revenues and that is what understandably got a lot of people worked up. the white house has been clear today and from the beginning that any balanced plan is going to require real revenue. so i think that it is important for us to, you know, focus on what the president says actually will be in the plan and not what some of the rumors suggest. again,
. but there are two big things. most damaging of all, he was pressed several times on whether he had had any conversations with all of his various contacts and friends at rupert murdoch's company in the u.k. about a $12 billion attempt to buy out the reminder of bskyb, the big broadcaster over there. this was a deal that the british government has quasi-judicial authority to approve or deny. all he could say is he had no inappropriate conversations. he kept using that phrase. frankly, it didn't sound like the members of parliament really bought that line. the second thing, a really explosive claim, that someone in the senior government, a senior government official had been hacked and bugged while andy coulson was there. these kinds of allegations are -- they just keep cropping up every day and it doesn't look like this kind of statement or investigations are going to end any time soon. >> yeah, we could be early in the game at the moment. michael, i want to play some sound from yesterday's testimony, what we heard there in parliament. take a listen to this first. >> i don't know. i am now a
for millionaires and big corporations is what republicans have called for. they need to meet us somewhere. >> thank you, congressman steve israel. >> thank you. >>> joining me now, "washington post's" chris, author of "the fix". a managing editor also. let's visit this grover norquist issue. i think on tuesday in an interview with your "washington post" editorial board, grover norquist, the man famous for his anti-tax pledge, said that not renewing the bush tax cuts would not violate his pledge. listen to some of that audio released. >> not continuing a tax cut is not technically a tax increase. >> stow does not violate the pledge. >> we wouldn't hold it that way. it would be a very bad thing to do. it would raise taxes from where they are today. >> who don't follow the inside baseball the way you and i eat, drink and sleep it. what is the significance of grover norquist saying that? >> for people who don't know, grover norquist since 1985 has run a group called americans for tax reform pap d.c.-based group that does a lot of thing. basically, to hold the line on no tax increases for republicans. e
is the big bad government is a threat to us. the consumer protection bureau as most americans understand is the government protecting them from abuse by private financial institutions. and they are terrified that the public will see that there is value to a public institution that can prevent them from being abused by private institutions because it undercuts the whole rationale that the government is always bad, always a problem. and that's why we are fighting so hard for it. >> congressman barney frank, democrat of massachusetts, ranking democrat on the financial committee. thank you for your time tonight. >>> texas governor, and gonna run for president guy, rick perry made a very surprising decision today that is going to upset some of his most ardent supporters. i'll tell you about it with a smile when i come back. k of pos. in here, the planned combination of at&t and t-mobile would deliver our next generation mobile broadband experience to 55 million more americans, many in small towns and rural communities, giving them a new choice. we'll deliver better service, with thousands of
this is impacting the temperatures that we're seeing. >> well, it's a big ridge of high pressure that's very strong and doesn't want to move, and we might be looking at it for a long period of time. we talk a lot about the humidity and what role that plays. your body tries to cool off by using sweat and evaporation. that doesn't happen very easily if you've got a lot of moisture in the atmosphere. coming up in the next hour, it will feel like 109 in chicago, 108 in st. louis, and the real problem for people who don't have air conditioning is what happens at night. we go to 11:00 tonight. it will still feel like 101 in st. louis. that's crazy. 95 in chicago and 89 in cincinnati, and this isn't going to change very much. again, it's a big ridge of high pressure. we talked about this heat dome gradually descending air. it's very strong and when fronts try to move in, they are redirected off to the north, and we don't get very much cool air at all. we're going to watch this ridge gradually expand a little farther east in the coming days, so it's going to be getting warmer into the northeast. by friday
is the last day of the big heat here. tomorrow is a cooler day and much better next week. >> for those of us who had to walk through the city yesterday this concrete jungle when you walked past those stores with the air-conditioning blowing out, a second of relief as you walk through it. can i ask you about the humidity danger. we had 104 yesterday as you're saying that's two degrees shy of an all time high. but you know, you add in the humidity, eric, 113, 114 it feels like. how does this make things dangerous? >> it stresses your body. when you sweat you can feel when it's humid it sits on you. when that evaporates in dry air that's how your body cools off. when it's humid outside, you don't get that relief. your body is working harder that's when people succumb to heatstroke and heat related issues. that's what makes this weather so dashlgs. >> eric fisher many thanks. >>> well developing now in europe. a nation in shock this morning after a killing spree claims the lives of at least 91 people apparently carried out by one man. police in norway say they've arrested a man connected to both
. that strikes me as stupid. thank you, richard. we'll begin right now. >>> the big story today, political poker, washington upping the ante. good afternoon, my name is dylan ratigan. nice to be seeing you. put on your poker face, my friends. president obama summoning congressional leaders back to the white house. first the democrats go with the -- the republicans shortly thereafter. they say they have a bipartisan proposal. we'll see how bernie sanders feels about it. it won't be done in time to raise the desert ceiling. all bets are on a short-term -- expect some sort of gang of six, reid/mcconnell hybrid deal. all you really need to know, whatever this deal is, it does nothing to address the structural causes of our deficit and joblessness from tax reform to trade reform to bank reform. instead you have politicians cutting things that are politically desirable for their constituents so that the politicians can try to keep their jobs while preventing us, the american people, from getting the structural improvements, banks trade, et cetera, that we all so desperately need. the pro wrestling con
here about a potential big deal, something that would reduce the deficit by $3 to $4 trillion over the next decade and under that plan you would see some cuts to discretionary spending right up front. then changes to entitlements, things like medicare and social security kick in a little later and also some changes to the tax code that would kick in later, things like rolling back tax breaks for wealthy americans and large corporations. now we're also hearing about the possibility of getting rid of that deduction for home mortgage interest. here's what's interesting, thomas. to your point earlier in the week, republicans were really upset over the possibility of changing the tax code, potentially increasing taxes. well, yesterday it was democrats who were concerned about the possibility that the president was maybe giving in on entitlement reform and not insisting on enough changes to the tax code. white house officials insist that is not the case. they say the president is dedicated to making sure that there is new revenue from changes to the tax code. so that's where we stand rig
't talk about the gang of six plan. what i like is it's talking about big bold bipartisan plan, a lot of details not out about it. it does talk about 3$3.7 trillin worth of spending cuts over the next ten years and talks about tax reform, i think is critically necessary, talks about lowering the rate, you heard 29%, again, allowing corporations to be more competitive in the global marketplace. these are things we want to accomplish and a big bold bipartisan plan is one we're looking for. >> congressman richmond, is that something you can get on board with? >> we're still looking at the plan and still concerns about reforms to social security that our seniors would receive. i think the framework and concept is something the american people want, which is a little give-and-take on both sides so we can get past this and get back to talking about the 14 million americans unemployed and looking for work. >> you're nodding your head when he's saying that, congressman dole. i'm wondering what you're hearing from your constituents and what their major concerns are when it comes to this tax pl
-terrorist organizations that are based in mexico, but that exist to supply drugs into the united states. but the big bust occurs here in the united states. as you say, think about this, friends, $60 million in cash. but let's talk about some of the drugs that authorities were able to take off the streets. meth, 2,773 pounds of it. almost the same amount of cocaine. marijuana, 14,800 pounds. and what this does is strikes a very massive blow to the operation of distribution of drugs from mexico into the united states. chris, you and i were talking with this last summer. when they got one of these thugs, his name was the barbie, they asked him, hey, how do you get all the cash back to mexico? he said well, they bring it in on tractor-trailers, you know, 18-wheelers full of cash. think about this. this is a cash-only business. they got $62 million worth of it that would go right into the coffers of these drug cartels. and it's a massive blow to these organizations, especially the distribution level of it. >> look, not to rain on the parade, because obviously this is huge and what they have done is pretty inc
